Acer launched two Android tablets at MWC 2011, the Iconia Tab A100 and the A500, both of which runs almost the same hardware except for the screen.

The A500 has a 1280x800 pixels, 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen while the A100 has a smaller 7-inch 1024x600 pixels one.

The former also packs more RAM (1GB vs 512MB) and either 16GB or 32GB compared to 8GB for the A100 tablet.

They both will ship with Android 3.0 although they are sporting Froyo at the moment and will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core SoC.

The similarities do not stop here; five megapixel cameras with flash with front facing two megapixel ones? Checked. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth? Checked. Clear.fi, Acer's media sharing system bundled? Checked.

Note that both the A100 and the A500 are Wi-Fi only devices, their 3G versions will be called the A101 and the A501 respectively.

The only thing where the A100 has the upper hand on its bigger brother is support for Dolby Mobile which is lacking on the A500.

Both tablets will be available from April in the UK with pricing and other details likely to be provided next month.
